In an environmental case, district court injunction requiring the defendant to clean up a contaminated site is affirmed where the government's claim to an injunction was not discharged in bankruptcy and thus can be renewed in a subsequent lawsuit as the government's equitable claim entitles it to require defendant to clean up the contaminated site at defendant's expense.
